Duckwrth: Live from Paisley Park
Over the last five years, LA-based rapper and songwriter Duckwrth has quickly emerged as a promising star in the future of music. Since his groundbreaking debut album I’m Uugly in 2016, (one of NPR’s 5 Essential Albums Slept-On), he’s released critically acclaimed music including An Xtra Uugly Mixtape in 2017, The Falling Man EP in 2019 (one of NPR Music’s best releases in 2019), and most recently, Super Good in 2020.
His collection of projects has transcended streaming platforms and global concerts, featuring in films (“Start A Riot” in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse), TV series (All American, Insecure, Real Time with Bill Maher) and brand ad campaigns for Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon, and Apple Music.
The androgynous vibes found in Duckwrth’s music and performances are heavily inspired by those of his favorite artists. “Freddie Mercury, André 3000, Prince, Robert Plant — all swim between both genders on an energy level. Because of that they can prance on stage and command the crowd like no other. I involve that energy in my music, which has opened up not only my sound, but the command I have on stage.”
Don’t miss this one-night event to experience Duckwrth’s visionary, feel-good, “electric soul” sound on the legendary Paisley Park stage.
